It was raining pretty hard last night, so I wimped out of going down to the parties at the Crowne Plaza, and I unfortunately had to pass on the invitation to a private party in one of the other hotels. So I got to bed relatively early and was once again up and about before 6 AM. This does have the good effect of being able to get breakfast in the Lounge when everything is fresh, and I get a little while to check messages.( Business Meeting ShowdownCollapse )
Today is actually relatively lightly programmed for me because I have no involvement with the Masquerade. Yesterday I didn't get any dinner (I had a late lunch and some food bars) because I was recording (and transmitting on UStream) the Australian Awards Ceremony.( Fun StuffCollapse )
In an attempt to cut down on weight carried, I left a bunch of spare computer kibble at home. So of course I needed to go look for a 2m USB extension cord yesterday. Sigh. And in fact, I think I'm going to go buy an Australian extension cord simply because my Australia-North America plug adapter is so bulky that is blocks the other outlets, so I need an extension cord in order to share outlets with anyone else.
I forgot my floppy hat, which is annoying given how much trouble I went to setting it aside in the first place. I need to find time to get another one, but I hate going off site. It's the Fear of Missing Something, you know.
Anyway, although the meeting is not for another two hours, I will probably be down in the room way early because it takes me so long to set up the equipment and make sure everything works. Current Mood: busy
